Curator’s Note: The car has long signified the notion of “hitting the road” and for Americans, the democratic ideals of freedom, mobility, and masculinity. (In contrast, the home is the visual sign of domesticity and femininity.) This is the reason I always love seeing photos of women posing with their own cars. I’m going to guess from the dresses that the photo was taken in the late 1930s/early 1940s. What do you think - am I way off?
